“I did not get invited,” Antetokounmpo said of Bryant’s camp. “It didn’t surprise me. I’ve connected with Kobe in the past; we text now and then. I think when that was going on, I was on the national team, so I don’t know if I was able to go there. But I don’t know if I would go there if he invited me, because there’s a lot of (other stars). You know, Kyrie (Irving) is a guy who plays for Brooklyn, and (a team) we’re going to play against. Kawhi Leonard (now with the Clippers) was there. A lot of guys was there. AD (the Lakers’ Anthony Davis) was there. Man, it’s not that I don’t want to (learn from other stars). I get better every day. I’ll learn from the 15th player on our team. I’ll learn from (Bucks reserve guard) Frank Mason. But my competitive nature is so high that when I go and practice (with other stars), I can’t do it. That’s me. I’m not saying it’s right, but that’s me. I just know myself. I know that because I’m a nice person, I’m going to start building relationships (with those other stars). And then I’m going to go against those guys, and they’re going to be my friends.”
“I got a chance to work out with him and play one-on-one with him in Las Vegas during Summer League,” Frank Mason said of the man they call The Greek Freak. “It was pretty big time. We did a lot of one-on-one, a lot of skill work, and also worked out with (fellow Bucks) Khris Middleton and Pat Connaughton and it was a good time. We all got better and just watching him live and watching his work ethic was unbelievable. I’m just excited to be a part of the team and to get to play with a guy like that.”
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guards Frank Mason III and Cam Reynolds to Two-Way contracts. Additionally, the Bucks have signed undrafted rookie forward Luke Maye. Mason III, 25, appeared in 38 games for the Sacramento Kings last season and averaged 5.1 points, 2.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 11.4 minutes per game. In two seasons with the Kings, Mason III averaged 6.8 points, 2.6 assists and 1.9 rebounds. He was drafted by the Kings with the 34th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft after finishing a highly-decorated collegiate career at Kansas as the consensus National Player of the Year.
The U.S. is another step closer to qualifying for the FIBA Basketball World Cup. Frank Mason III scored 16 points and the U.S. beat Uruguay 114-57 on Friday night in the Americans’ first game of the second round of qualifying for next year’s World Cup. The Americans took command with a 15-0 run late in the first quarter, and finished the game shooting 61 percent.
Returning to contend for a USA roster spot after previously playing with USA World Cup Qualifying Teams are guard Reggie Hearn (Grand Rapids Drive) and center Jameel Warney (Texas Legends). Hearn played with the USA’s November 2017 and June 2018 World Cup Qualifying Teams, and while getting the starting nod in all four games, averaged 12.3 points a game. Warney played for U.S. in the November World Cup Qualifier and averaged 11.5 points and 8.0 rebounds a game. Both players were also part of the USA AmeriCup Team that finished 5-0 to claim gold in August 2017. Warney, who was selected the 2017 USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year, earned AmeriCup MVP honors after posting 12.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game, while Hearn contributed 10.0 points a game. Rounding out the U.S. training camp roster are Bryce Alford (Oklahoma City Blue); Dwayne Bacon (Charlottw Hornets); V.J. Beachem (Free Agent); Jordan Crawford (New Orleans Pelicans); Henry Ellenson (Detroit Pistons); Isaiah Hicks (New York Knicks); Dakari Johnson (Free Agent); Frank Mason III (Sacramento Kings); Ben Moore (Fort Wayne Mad Ants); Chasson Randle (Capital City Go-Go); Travis Trice (Milwaukee Bucks); and Derrick White (San Antonio Spurs).
Rookie guard Frank Mason III might yell to him, “Pull up on his block!” And Temple might translate that it means to shoot in the opponent’s face. “We’ll send a message within our group text and he’ll randomly reply,” Temple said. “(Monday) De’Aaron Fox said, ‘Who needs a chop in Houston?’ Anybody else, especially us black guys, know that’s, ‘Who needs a haircut?’ Bogi says, ‘What’s a chop?’ Things like that he’s still trying to figure out, so I find myself explaining certain lyrics of a song, what certain stuff says.”
With De’Aaron Fox on the roster, the Kings have no interest in acquiring any veteran point guards, sources said. Fox and fellow rookie point guard Frank Mason make George Hill expendable, especially Mason is healthy. The Kings can also play Bogdan Bogdanovic at point. The Kings aren’t interested in acquiring long-term deals because they want to maintain financial flexibility. The Kings would also like to collect more draft picks as part of their latest attempt to rebuild and become a winning team.
